Miss Violence

Synopsis: It's Angeliki's 11th birthday celebration, and a well-organised party is held in her honour. Everything is in order, and all the ingredients of a usual birthday party are there. A nice fest, a big cake, music, dance, a caring grandfather's embrace... a truly loving family environment. But is it real, or is this an elaborate facade? As we witness a devastating act of despair, we understand that something lies underneath. The story advances, and we slowly get lured into a web of hideous secrets, while gradually getting ourselves dragged into a downward spiral of lies and deceptive appearances. When we unwillingly unravel the mysteries kept behind closed doors, in reality, we plunge into the depths of the human soul and the unfathomable secrets within.

Happy birthday to you...

...happy birthday to you...

...happy birthday,

dear Angeliki,...

...happy birthday to you!

- Bravo!

- Happy birthday!

Well done, sweetheart!

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday, Angeliki!

Philippos, come over here.

Take a picture of us.

This one.

Come on.

Myrto, come over here!

Mom, I'm pregnant.

Are you sure?

Happy birthday!

Let's take a group shot.

Come on, leave it for now.

Let's take a family shot.

Alkmini

come over here.

Where's Angeliki?

We understand

what you're going through.

Our agency is here

because you need support.

Thank you.

To your knowledge,

did she have problems at school?

Did she not want to go?

She was a good student.

Did she have trouble with

a schoolmate or perhaps a teacher?

No.

Do you know that

or are you just assuming?

I don't know...

Did you notice

any strange behaviour?

Did she stay in her room a lot?

Not wanting to see anyone.

No.

- Did she cry for no reason?

- No.

Did she have nightmares

or wake up in the night?

No.

- Did you scold her often?

- No. Never.

I'm afraid

we must look into

...the possibility

of child neglect.

What do you mean?

I don't understand...

She didn't have

any problems.

It was her birthday,

she was very happy

playing with her brother

and sister when...

The balcony railings

are very safe.

This is just a formality...

...that Welfare observes

in such cases.

We'll come to your house

and make sure you're okay.

Eleni, come on, please.

Eleni.

It'll do us good

to sit together at the table.

Come on.

Eleni.

Please help me out here.

Come on.

So you don't want us to

sit together at the table.

You don't want us

to look after each other.

So where were you yesterday?

And you?

And you?

And you?

Where were you all?

But forget about them.

Where were you?

How could you let this happen?

Tell me.

Let's go to bed.

Why did you let them

talk to me like that?

Go back to sleep.

Come in.

- How are you?

- All right.

Here are her things.

You didn't have

to bring the kids in today.

The whole class is very upset.

You're right, but I thought it would

do them good to get out of the house.

You know, there are a lot

of rumors going around.

Angeliki hung out with older

kids, along with your daughter.

One of them is bragging that

she committed suicide for him.

I don't think so.

It's dangerous for the children.

- What's this?

- It's about a job.

They said you should call them

by four o'clock.

Better not go today.

Stay home.

Why were

you quarelling?

She doesn't want

to go to school.

I know.

And where's Eleni?

At the police station.

Myrto!

Come here!

What did they want?

I went to get

the death certificate.

We have to take it

to the Registry Office. Today.

Was Welfare there?

No.

What took you so long?

Good morning.

You'll have to declare the death

to all services involved.

ID card, please.

This is the last month you'll be

getting the child benefit

You'll lose 170 euros

due to her death.

I understand.

Thank you.

Lena had other toys, but

neither she nor the other kids

had ever seen such a doll.

She lived in a place where

no one had more than the other.

Come help me.

Keep reading on your own.

Eleni.

Here's the bus ticket.

Put it in the back seat.

You will earn 530 euros

for a 5-day week. Full time.

Plus social security,

of course.

You can start today, so you can see

what you're supposed to do.

Certainly. At your service.

Thank you for this opportunity.

Your contract

is for 4 months.

If they subsidize social security

again next year...
